Ropes & Gray advised an ad hoc group of first lien lenders to K&N Engineering, Inc. On February 16, K&N announced the closing of a recapitalization transaction that reduced its debt by approximately $250 million and participating first lien lenders invested $60 million of new money into the business. K&N previously entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement with 100% of its first lien lenders, second lien lenders and equity holders. As a result of the transaction, first lien lenders control a majority of the equity of K&N.
